Yup. Get a seat strap, and one that doesn't call for a boot and a chancy fit on the bottom of the horn.

I had my new used bassoon fitted for a ring for a hook with my seat straps, and had a local leather shop turn out of two of them for me. Used a couple of old bass clarinet neck strap hooks, which they installed into the leather with a blind rivet, and then stitched up with a sueded side for on the seat and a smooth side to sit on.

Some English firm has a bracket that fits over the right thigh. Not cheap, though. There are also add-on spikes that you can purchase, but they require a permanent installation on the bassoon.
